Its amazing the difference a day or two makes. Ironsides looks wonderful and getting ready to feed those pups. The bone broth sounds like a great thing to help her with everything she will be giving to the pups.

That's going to be quite the large litter! Congrats

I'm guessing in the 10 range myself. Possibly 11.

The world would be a nicer place if everyone had the ability to love as unconditionally as a dog.

I'm checking in every day. Waiting for those puppies. (Yeah, I know I'm a little early, but I don't want to miss anything.)

I will update as soon as I can once things progress



She did puke up her breakfast today and has been very picky about what she will consume. So far lamb shanks seem to be doing the trick. So I hope it doesn't go on too much longer - but she will know better than I when the right time is lol!

What an exhausting week!

Last Wednesday morning Ironhide's temperature dropped to 98.3. I had taken her temperature first thing in the morning, I took it again throughout the day, her temp went back up to normal by the afternoon, so I thought I had missed her temperature drop overnight. So we prepared for puppies! At 9:30pm she started acting restless, panting, circling - I stayed up all night! At 5am, everything stopped and she went to sleep. Like WTH!!?? So I watched her Thursday, Friday, Saturday, SUNDAY, AND MONDAY... every night she kept me up, then she slept all day.

She was so large at this point, she couldn't walk much and you could tell her legs weren't able to move properly without hitting her belly - how much longer could she go!? July 1st was her first due date, July 4th was the absolute last.

On Sunday July 2nd, her temperature dropped yet again, 97.9 this time - all of my mentors told me if the first drop was false, usually the second one is the real thing. So I checked her throughout the day, her temperature slowly crept up back to normal. I checked her again before bed, and it dropped AGAIN!!! 97.3! Ok this MUST be the real drop right?

IT WAS! Lol

Born Tuesday July 4th, between 5:15am and 7:54pm, 9 GORGEOUS, FAT puppies - 5 Males (All Sable) and 4 Females (2 Black, 2 Sable). Puppies weighed between 1 lb 3 oz and 1 lb 5 oz. So far everyone is doing good. Ironhide is on antibiotics, she spiked a fever, likely from her retained placentas. Hopefully it will resolve soon. She is such a good mom and being her 3rd litter, she doesn't need my help much. I make sure she is fed/watered and pottied, she pretty much does the rest.

Very much looking forward to these guys growing up! I will post more pics once I have rested a bit more.

Our 4th of July Litter - Our theme names are TBA
